Eric Church soldiers on despite broken foot

Monday, September 14, 2009 – Eric Church fractured his foot during a show on his Young & Wild(er) Tour at the Syracuse State Fair on Sept. 4, but us continuing his tour despite the injury. Church is on tour supporting his sophomore release, "Carolina," which features the hit single Love Your Love The Most.

"As my fans know, I get pretty excited on stage and stomp my feet," said Church. "The combination of the stomping and the fact that our crowds are crazier than ever led to me breaking my foot. I refuse to miss a show over this, so for the time being, I'll be doing the rest of the shows from a stool. I'm still gonna bring it, and I expect our fans to do the same." The tour which started on Sept. 3 includes performances along the East Coast and Midwest and is a continuation of the "Young & Wild Tour" last spring that included 20 sold out shows and record breaking attendance at the Dallas Bull in Tampa, Fla.

The music, written and recorded over a short period of time with an unheard of fast turnaround, has a raw edge that bridges the gap between radio friendly country music with the more rugged sound ...
CD review - The Outsiders Eric Church looks to take no prisoners on his big and bold - sometimes very dark - sounding fourth studio release. He makes that crystal clear on the cover where he stands flanked by his backing quintet, looking tough, menacing, ready for a rumble with arms hanging down, hiding behind sunglasses. These guys are ready to roll. As in rock and roll, which Church et al cook up with the lead-off title track, an out-and-out rocker with Church laying down his outside the lines credentials. ...
